... did we know that there were lions only a two minute drive away from where we were working, which we found on our game drive afterwards. A couple of games of werewolf and it was time for a well earned rest.... And that brings me to today. Which has so far only consisted of a game drive in horrific fog.

... glint of ice white. The sea mist dances above the silence of the lagoon and the scene is one of elegant mystery.

My feet can bare the temperature of the lagoon, but I retreat immediately upon testing the icy temperature of the seawater. We resolve to go for a swim tomorrow, but it will be in the lagoon; not the sea.
